SCARS CAN GIVE US A SENSE OF PRIDE OR CAN WE RE-TRAUMATIZE BY REMINDING US OF THE PAST. WITH THESE THOUGHTS TATTOO ARTIST FLAVIA CARVALHO DECIDED A PROJECT NAMED “A PELE DA FLOR” TO START (TRANSLATION: ‘THE SKIN OF FLOWER’). THROUGH THIS PROJECT, IT PROVIDES A FREE SERVICE FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE THE SCARS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

Flavia Carvalho runs a studio in Curitiba, Brazil. She helped women was the inserted or were hit by bullets.

She explains:

“I STARTED THE PROJECT RECENTLY AND I HAD NO IDEA THAT IT WOULD GET AS MUCH ATTENTION FROM THE MEDIA. IT ALL STARTED SPONTANEOUSLY. LIKE I SAID, MY SERVICE IS VOLUNTARY ONE HUNDRED PERCENT AND THE ONLY “COST” THE WOMEN HAVE TO INVEST IS TO CHOOSE THE DESIGN FOR THE TATTOO! “

She tells her story of how it all began:

“IT ALL STARTED ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS WORKING WITH A CLIENT WHO WANTED TO COVER A LARGE SCAR ON HER ABDOMEN.”

“SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE VISITED A NIGHTCLUB, AND A MAN WHO TRIED TO APPROACH REFUSED, SO HE STOOD ON THEM WITH A SWITCHBLADE.”

“WHEN SHE SAW THE FINISHED TATTOO, SHE WAS EXTREMELY MOVED AND TOUCHED ME DEEPLY.”

“THE STORY THAT SHOCKED ME THE MOST WAS THAT OF A 17- YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO SAW AN OLDER MAN FOR MONTHS AND SUFFERED FROM PHYSICALLY ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP.”
